Firemen

Well, that French film is far less spectacular than BACKDRAFT, but that's the best French film so far about fire soldiers. Besides, I have rarely seen such a HUMAN story I mean a tale with such convincing characters played by such convincing actors and actresses. Deep characters, which move you to the bone. Dialogues are excellent, outstanding, sharp as diamonds. No length in this film, only amusing, funny scenes, especially supported by dialogues, but also gripping, unbearable sequences, such as this one where the firemen enter by force into an apartment which the door was closed, to save the owner, and when they find a young woman who hanged herself wearing her wedding dress. No one, I repeat no human being can stay cold in front such a sequence. This story also focuses on daily domestic life and burden of those ordinary heroes. Human heroes.
